OK. I'm stuck not doing anything right now. So I took the list, cut-and-pasted into google sheets, sorted alphabetically.

First of all, huge points off for not having St Thomas on the list of possible Division I schools. Yes, I know, St Thomas is Division III not Division II, but when you make a list of 40 Division 2 schools that might upgrade, and then throw in another one (Rogers STate), and you miss one of the 7 actual upgrades, that's not good.

Augustana University is also not on the list. I don't *think* the Summit is about to invite them, but they're definitely flirting.

I don't know that I have anything else to say about the rest of the list. It's just impressive to list 40 candidates for what turned out to be 7 (maybe 8) spots, and missed 1 (maybe 2) of the winning candidates.

A rumor has been that Augustana will buy U of Sioux Falls and build Medical School financed by Sanford. USF and AUgie are neighbors.

When I made this list, D3 schools can't make a jump to D1. That is why St. Thomas was excluded. If they get the okay to go to D1? Here are my list of the next D3 schools.

Rowan
Salisbury
Christopher-Newport
Mary Washington
Johns Hopkis

Can you please list the year you’re “predicting” them to start their D1 transition and the conference they will be joining?

To be fair, in this thread he actually stuck to to the title and listed only D2 school. Yes, in other threads he has listed JUCOs and non-athletics schools for D1 while generally ignoring D3 schools.

He says he didn't include D3 schools because it was against the rules for them to jump to D1 but argues the NCAA COULD give a waiver for every other rule in the book that suits his narrative.

The popular reason he gives for schools to go D1 is so they will get more recognition. Some schools don't need to be D1 to get more recognition; Johns Hopkins and MIT are "lowly" D3 schools and yet are known world-wide.

The only reason he is now listing Christopher Newport, Mary Washington, and Salisbury is because they are the only schools left in their D3 conference.

The school has suspended athletics for at least two years and withdrawn from the NCAA. So much for this "brilliant prediction". Will DavidSt concede he was wrong?

My alma mater, Queens University of Charlotte, has been adding programs like crazy the last few years. It makes me think that they are at least exploring D1 athletics (non-football).

Exactly, that’s my point. Our neithbor’s brother is the athletic director. I sat in his seats for the West Georgia game Saturday. They studied it internally not too long ago and it’s not happening.

i feel like they are more afraid to move up. its sad really because they would be pretty good. i feel like most schools who are successful at the d2 level needs to move up. the whole "they are in financial trouble" could be used for 98% of schools at any level.
